Ashlee Lloyd is a young industrial/lighting designer,


conceptualist, textile lover and lighting fanatic based


in Cape Town, South Africa. Simultaneously inspired


by the rich culture of craft in Southern Africa and the


complex forms found in nature, her aim is to create


functional pieces that engage ones emotions and


senses. Each piece is delicately handcrafted with


patience and attention to detail to create a tactile













She allows each piece to form organically,


combining contrasting materials such as synthetic


rope, yarns, raffia grass and recycled t-yarn. She


conceptualizes solutions for interior spaces


incorporating traditional decorative techniques such


as crochet and modern energy saving lighting


methods. Her approach is at once artistic, tangible,


functional and unique. Her artistic vision is propelled


by her desire for creation.
